Daakota (Primera's Cria sired by EP Killawaski), and Primera, have just arrived in Belgium at Alpakalandgoed Alpaca Stud in Laakdal, Belgium. They now join English Rose, Primera's last cria, sired By Bozedown Celebrity.
Black Onyx has now entered quarantine on his way to Alpakalandgoed, Belgium, and he will be at Stud in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, as Yvonne and her husband Olivier also do Mobile matings with their stud males across most of the surrounding countries to Belgium.
Black Onyx, Champion winning alpaca
Yvonne and Olivier has also purchased Sundance Kid, as their future Solid white Stud male. He has a superb fleece and extremely fine. Micron 17 SD 3.3 CV 19.5 Conf F 100 Spin F 16.3 Date tested 29/10/08
These two photos were taken at sunset, and so there is a different hue on the alpacas.
We look forward to working with Yvonne & Olivier, as we have sent a few alpacas over in this shipment.
Snow Drifter, Solid white stud male, stunning in every aspect. Solid Bone, broad chest, magnificant head, crimp, coverage, and extremely dense. Remember we have red soil here, and so on the outside the alpacas may not look white, but when you open their fleece, they are stunning. now Drifter is sired By the famous Cristiano, (allianza Old, from Peru).
Cristiano has sired Mariah Hill Khan, who was for many years, ( i have not heard as yet if his record has been beaten ), the highest tested S/P ratio in the world 16:1, if you are into SRS. Many of his female progeny also have been used around the world for donor animals for the ET programs.
Kasarni, (Dk Fawn female Sired by Olympic Dream (full Accoyo), son of Stefano (full Accoyo)), Austar Solid Black future Stud male, and Aailyah (solid white, super fine female), Absolutely stunning fleece.
When the fleece tester (who tests for th Ultra fine Bale), tested Kasarni's, and Aailyah's fleece, his comments were about their SD.
Aailyah's SD being 3.2, when it is so low, he said these are the SD that are the improvers, to get a SD low on a female over 12 months of age on her second fleece, still carrying a 17 micron fleece, means that these traits will be passed on.
These are the type of alpacas we should be breeding.
